Veritas Netbackup Server = 7.1

OS of Veritas Netbackup Server = Win2008

IBM Tape Library attached with six Tape Drives



After Tape Drive cleaned by Tape Library/Robot Automatically, the Tape Drive still shows "Needs Cleaning". See the below snap for reference:



If the cleaning is run from library as we done it, Veritas Netbackup will know nothing about it, so the drives will still show as needing cleaning. tpclean -M <drive name> command will reset this manually (the "M" should not be small character in the command).


There may be more problem behind the same problem but what I have experienced I shared with you all.

Why Roseville?

We started the NetBackup and Backup Exec launch sequence this week with the release of the Countdown to Better Backup Calendar. This was modeled after the idea of an Advent Calendar. Every few days we will open a new window to reveal a new feature of the launch calendar leading up to the product launch. As part of the launch effort each square on the calendar will open in a different city worldwide. This helps us reach our customers and partners in cities around the world and it gives us a chance to bring together all the people who have worked on the release.

Often in marketing it is hard to deliver technical information to the end customers. Everyone is busy, and there is so much noise online it is hard for product announcements to reach customers. One just needs to post a question on LinkedIn asking...

I have noticed a drop up to 2/3 in backup performance on HP-UX 11.31 systems where PHKL_41700 is installed.  A support case at HP provided the follwing information:

PHKL_41700 introduced behavior whereby on systems that do not enable high resolution timers, applications that use the select(2) system call as a timers may suffer performance degradation. If the performance degradation disappears after setting the kernel tunable:


Then the performance degradation observed is caused by the changes introduced in the select(2) system call code path provided by PHKL_41700.

This behavior is known to affect the performance of DataProtector, Quest Shareplex, Oracle SQL, Veritas Cluster Server, xntp (Network Time Protocol) and xterm(1) commands. Furthermore, any application that uses the select(2) system call with zero timeout and a value for nfd > 0 will experience this behavior.

To work...

IDC approached Symantec, unsolicited, for a briefing on V-Ray. They were looking to create an Insight Report for their customers as they had so many inquiries around V-Ray. You’ll find this to be a very comprehensive and technical write up that shows NetBackup’s leadership in virtual machine protection with VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V.

Duplication by SLP is not something you can schedule from the console.

I will propose here two ways to workaround this matter Symantec didn't provide a tool for : one quite well known, and a new one, more elegant but also more discrete.

First Method - scripting

You can deactivate/reactivate SLP duplication operations by scripting the command line :

nbstlutil active -lifecycle <SLP_mySLP> | -backupid <This_backupid>

nbstlutil inactive -lifecycle <SLP_mySLP> | -backupid <This_backupid>

Getting the list of the SLP policies is just a question of nbstlutil list command, while working with the backupid can be more tricky if you want an automized solution.

There you will be able to deactivate all you SLP at night by a cron, a windows task, controleM or $Universe, whatever method is your favorite.

The session_notify and end_session_notify script may help organize the duplication moment too,...
